Plus, the routine of putting together your look helps you maintain a sense of normalcy and that can make you feel more equipped to handle any obstacle that comes your way.
We have put together a few beauty essentials that you can stock up on for yourself or a loved one who’s battling cancer.

Don’t underestimate the capabilities of a bit of color when it comes to improving your overall look - and your outlook on everything. Realistically, adding a healthy flush to your cheeks will make you look healthier, so you may want to tap into the “fake it till you make it” idea to look good to feel good. Sweeping blush every day can be one of those simple steps in your daily self-care routine.
Like blush, swiping on a bit of lipstick or gloss can brighten your mood and help you feel more like yourself. Go with an old favorite or pick out something new and wild like royal purple, deep burgundy, or even a bold sapphire blue.
Nothing is too frivolous when it helps in the fight against something as big and all-encompassing as cancer. Beauty is a pretty powerful thing - we just need to take advantage of it.
